TIMMY TEACUP is a small white teacup with green spots. He lives with his mom, grandma, and great-grandma on an old piecrust table in the dining room of the house at 33 Teacup Lane. He's a happy little guy ever since he learned how to "love himself just the way he is" a few years back.
This story begins when Timmy overhears the human kids in the house talking about going to school and he gets excited that maybe HE could go to school, too! So, everything gets set up for school on the dining room table for Timmy & his friends: Donna the Dish, Fred the Fork, Sally the Spoon, and Nick the Knife. They are having fun and learning a lot!
Unfortunately, Timmy has heard Stevie, one of the human children, coming home from third grade crying almost every day! When Timmy & his friends are given an assignment to "write about something important", Timmy decides to write about what is happening to Stevie.
In this thought-provoking look at what is making Stevie unhappy, the subject of BULLYING becomes the issue and is discussed. Timmy & his friends learn valuable lessons about the different kinds of bullying and what to do and what NOT to do about this upsetting problem!
